This rare and beautiful heirloom plant bears long, thin, pointed pods, slightly bent, jester's shoes style, at the end. The pods begin to ripen purple before finally ripening through deepening shades of orange, and finishing, believe it or not, deep red! This long-lost fascinating rediscovery was found, totally forgotten, after years of being frozen, possibly since 1944, in the bottom of an ancient freezer in America. And still, thankfully, they germinated. A most productive plant which can reach 5 feet/1.5m in a greenhouse or warm sheltered garden. (30,000-50,000 SHU)

Sowing Advice

Surface-sow or barely cover the seeds indoors, and keep moist and warm above 20C. (Peppers generally demand warmer conditions than tomatoes to germinate successfully). When sprouts appear move them to a sunny window. Set out well-developed transplants when weather is warm. Peppers need rich moist soil and warm sunny conditions to flourish. Best sown in early spring.
